Gossip Girl > Gossip Girl Round Table: "Memoirs of an Invisible Dan" > Comments Page 4
Well you're right, he was not at his best in this episode. But Dan will always remain judgemental like you said it's part of his character. One reason why Dair fans like him with Blair is because with her he has sort of overcome that aspect of his character and that's the beauty of it. Yet we know Chair is endgame.
Perhaps he did put her on that pedestal but she wasn't just there being passive while he uncovered the more obscure sides of her. She also had part where she actively disappointed him (the whole Dan and Nate drama). Also she takes him for granted much of the time. He was harsh but I think it was necessary. I don't like her at all but if it takes those two to hatch things out so we can be sure of no Derena reunion I'm in. Derena would be my worst nightmare.
I don't think Dan likes her. If he had he would have put her above anything else like he used to. Instead he seeks Blair which shows whom he likes best. Plus Blair is apparently the only one who was nicely portrayed in t
Someone mentioned this on the NYMag recap comments:
"Are we missing a scene here between the "kiss" and the party? Blair tells Dan to get his ass over to the apartment, and you hear the elevator then bang, we skip to the book party"
I noticed that too... what was up with that? Any ideas?
I think Blair will forgive him first. Or well, maybe Serena but that will just be because of work.
I seriously hope Rufus will forgive him soon too. Dan is his son and he can't tell that the "Dan" in the book (don't remember the name) isn't the same as the one we know (and love) on the show? If that's the case, Rufus might just be the worst father ever! It's obvious that our Dan doesn't feel that way about his dad. Like most of what he wrote it is a bit true but Dan isn't a coldhearted person.
I actually do like Dan but I do think his fans like some major Blair fans downplays his flaws and blame it on others. I call a spade, a spade and Dan is a judgmental dick of a person out of everyone and does not take responsibility (and him claiming the book was more about the glory than responsibility) also someone pointed out he really is an attention junkie (hence his frustration with Serena who in facts doesn't seeks it but gets it anyway and he isn't the only one who has issues with this but Blair does too). I also think while Serena is not my favorite character she deserved better from what she got. Dan pretty much trashed his relationship with his oldest friend for her, yet that he blames her for it is a coward move, Serena never portrayed herself in certain way to him, Dan did that all on his own and when she failed to live up to it, he cuts her off. Derena in my opinion have never hash things out fully, and I would think any Dair fan would at least hope they do if they wanted
At this point, Louis is like the Candyman. Blair can’t even invoke his name without him stepping suddenly out of the shadows behind her. It was absurd when he stepped into the room just as Dan was denying sleeping with Blair, and took it as an admission of guilt, but we laughed out loud when Blair, talking to Serena, said, “I just wish Louis felt the same about me,” and we heard his disembodied, “I do.” If Louis really wants to have a more trusting relationship with Blair, his first act might be to stop sneaking up on her. Minus 8
ROFL See?! Louis is SUCH a creeper! I actually made a drinking game out of it! Everytime he creeps up on Blair I do a shot. Last week I was sober though :( cus he was gone most of the episode.
Its kinda sad that there isn't a single Dair shipper on this entire writing staff. All the Chair fans seem to have all the advocates. The Producers, most of the writers, leighton, and Ed..... Its just Penn Badgley, one lone writer, and all the Dair fans. Makes me sad :(
I still believe that Dan and Blair will get together at some point. They have done so much for the show, bringing back old fans and reeling in new ones, we need some sort of payoff. However, Chair will probably be endgame which makes me want to not have Dair at all just so they wont have to break up.
I know you don't like Dan and I'm not trying to change anything about that either.
Yet for one, he never meant for the book to be published. Had he been truly mean at heart and careless about his friends' feelings, he wouldn't have cared about the book being published at all. The fact that Dan wanted them to read it first showed that he cared. He didn't want them to find out differently and he wanted to clarify things.
As with Serena, she was portrayed badly but she deserved every bit of it. I never liked her character and I can see that Dan was feeling resentful when he wrote her character. To me, his book is like a diary, something he never really wanted others to see. I think that Dan was harsh to Serena because he was already loaded with the fact that Nate hated him and Blair (the girl he loves) as well and to have Serena add to the lot just made him snap. The fact that she just assumed she would be portrayed nicely made me gag. She's far from being perfect.
Your point is so obvious and true, i don't get why other people don't get it.
Dan didn't mean for the book to be published!!!
I want to know what was the deal after the "kiss" Blair sent the angry text for Dan to meet her at her apartment then we get some Serena stuff then some Nate and Chuck stuff then we see the dream kiss then you hear the elevator, then bam after the commercials it pops to the book party. Was it just a plothole or what
*craving attention* of course! Where was my mind? Oh yes in German^^
I would love it if Blair was the first one to resume her friendship with Dan, and be there to support him and help him smooth things over with the others, given the way he has been there for her in past episodes. Realistically though, I think that girl has enough drama going on in her life that she's not going to be too concerned about how her sometimes-friend is faring. Serena will probably start out trying to rekindle a fake friendship with Dan, just in an attempt to land the movie rights. But I'm thinking in the process, she will start to feel for the guy. (Maybe even be the one to realise that he is actually in love with Blair?)
Oh and BtW. I can't understand why everybody is so upset about Dan. As everybody I mean "us" the viewers. I mean he wrote something! For HIMSELF! I do this too. Then this crazy bitch came and stole it, puplished it and went to Barcelona never seen again. After that Dan tried evrything to stop this. But then some other guy and wanted to publish it under his name. And this has nothing to do with hushing attention on Dan's part that he didn't let that slide. I mean after all this is his baby. I don't know if anyone can understand this without writing himself but it's a very personal thing and even if you never wanted it to be read from someone else you still care und put your heart in it. So it's the most normal reaction I could imagine for Dan or any writer actually.
So at the end of the day it's all Vanessas's fault again^^
And yeah, one thing I loved was that Dan had Chuck die accidentally from erotic asphyxiation. LOL, nice touch.
"Blair isn't a resentful type"
May we all forget the reason Jenny's ass was sent to her mom's. Also ask Serena what happen when she and Blair are on the oust.
However, she is preoccupied to be concern over Dan.
'I like Duck though! Chuck is thousand times better in a bromance than in a romance!'- @ kookakicha
Hilarious and true:
'except for the CHAIR situation. They need to move along, they're causing traffic on rush hour'. @lucky bastarda
I finally enjoyed Chuck in this episode as he wasn't an angsty, comical Blair chaser but a funny and interesting character in his own right.
I call for single Chuck for endgame!
while I do think the sl is brilliant, Dan is still a shit. He judgmental and his harshness towards Serena proved thet he not changing that anytime soon because it is the core of his character just like Blair being a bitch will always be in her core. And just like he admitted to putting Serena on the pedestal, he is doing the same with Blair and cause he really doesn't know how to be a girl's friend without having more than friendly feelings towards them, he becomes insensitive to his other friends (as Vanessa only started acting like a bitch when Dan's fickle ass was stringing her along in favor of trying to get back with Serena). Also this bullshit about him being the only one there for Blair is just BS. So far only he and Chuck knows (well Serena found out last night) and prior to that all of Blair's friends were out of town. So Chuck can't be there for her because Louis always blows a fuse when ever he just says hello to Blair (I mean totally understand I wouldn't want fiancee
Dan and Blair make good friends. They would never work as a couple, IMO. Plus, there's the fact that Blair doesn't feel that way about him. She's already caught between two other guys.
I love Dan. Him, Serena, and Blair are my favorite characters. But the things he said to Serena were wrong. He belittled their relationship, and Serena didn't know about Blair being pregnant at that point. Just last season Serena and Dan were about to get back together. Serena is flaky, but Dan is far from perfect and has made a lot of mistakes. I hope those two can work out their issues and get back together. For me it will alwasy be Derena and Chair.
Everyone hates him now, but who will be the first to become friends with Dan again?
Blair I think. You can say a lot about her but she isn't the resentful type of person. Her farytale is back on track so there is nothing to be angry about anymore!
Are Chuck and Blair destined to be together?
Just ask the dog. Even Monkey felt the urge to bring them closer. This was such a Pongo/Perdy moment!=)
I totally agree with you. I think Dan and Blair are just awesome together and healthy and sweet. It would be such a different relationship than with Chuck or anyone else before (with Nate it was too sweet whereas with Dan it's just in the middle).
Unfortunately, the writers totally took a stab at all Dair fans, leading us on for so long and then just dropping us this episode with only a fantasy kiss for a semi-consolation. I alweys knew Chair was endgame but there was a little bit of hope in me that Blair will still avoid Chuck (whom I like a thousand times better alone). Last night's episode made it clear.
Yet, we know the only person who was painted good in his book was Blair (according to Vanessa's words). If she ever bothers to read the whole thing, may be (and that's hoping a lot) she can overcome her anger.
I still didn't like that Dan bashed his father. However, this episode created way too much hate for Dan. The writers seem to want us to dislike him so we
I loved this episode! It was really great.
If anything, it made me feel like Chuck is really good on his own. I don't mean lonely, just single. He is so much more witty and sarcastic and even... smarter. Chair has proven to be no fun. So its a shame all the girls on the table support that union AGAIN.
A lot of people are calling Dan a shit but I think his storyline is brilliant and I love how assertive he is becoming. Yes, what he wrote about his dad was upsetting but I don't think everything in that book is an accurate portrayal!
Gossip girl feels like its come a long way since S1 & 2 and even though its very different in feel it is a fantastic evolution. Its a bit more of an adult show now which makes all the shipping wars feel a bit redundant.
Infact, I'm a big Dair lover but watching this episode made me feel that maybe everyone should end up single, as friends. the whole group.
Anyway, hope it'll keep being this much fun :)
I liked how Nate was ok with his character being gay in the beginning as long as he has game! XD
and don't forget when chuck said he was insulted dan didn't make him gay lol
I said it all on my comment in the review post. To sum up, I loved the episode (having rewatched it again a few minutes ago), and I'm on Dan's side.
I agree with almost everything in here except for the CHAIR situation. They need to move along, they're causing traffic on rush hour.
I think DAN and BLAIR are awesome together. Call me crazy, but I can totally see the two hanging out at the movies, holding hands or maybe staying in bed on a lazy sunday morning. I can actually picture them having kids.
I know, I know... GET A LIFE! But I think so, sorry.
I have mixed feelings about this episode.
Since the episode revolved around Dan I found it rather boring. It was in a way predictable right from the beginning that everyone will dislike him by the end. So when the ending did came I wasn't shocked his friends and families outcasted him. I laughed when Rufrus got upset with Dan in the end because the writers are so desperate to give him a purpose that they're trying to make him do the same things as the younger people.
I know Jenny is never coming back but I thought the show should have at least give an excuse as to why she and Dan's mom did not show up for the party just to make the show more realistic.
Nate is now mad about being gay? Get over it. Derek sounds so much more interesting than Nate does right now with his job and damn fling with Diana.
Diana needs to go. She's really boring. If Diana's purpose in the show is to a.) reveal that Charlie is Ivy to everyone or b.) Chuck is really the father c.) Chuck and Blair had se
If most of you, as adults, are on Team Chair, then there is something very wrong. I don't care who Blair ends up with, as long as it's not Chuck Bass. She deserves so much better, and he deserves to be alone. I don't care how many dogs or Dan Humphrey's they try to use to redeem him, he has always been and will always be a sick mother-Chucker who cares about no one but himself and Blair (but only when she's in relationships with other people, of course).
